In its second year of its very successful initiative, USA Basketball will conduct four Gold Camps in 2020.

USA Basketball Gold Camps will take place in Dallas, Texas, for 7th and 8th grade girls from May 9-10 and for 7th and 8th grade boys from May 30-31; and also in Charlotte, North Carolina, for 7th, 8th and 9th grade boys and girls on Sept. 19-20.

USA Basketball Gold Camps are designed for athletes that demonstrate skills in line with the advanced or performance level of the USA Basketball Player Development Model. USA Basketball representatives will attend camps to evaluate the development level of all participants.

“We saw a tremendous response in 2019, and USA Basketball is excited to offer more Gold Camps in 2020,” said Jay Demings, USA Basketball Youth & Sport Development director. “This is an important program for us, because it serves young athletes who are focused on improving their game and gives USA Basketball the opportunity to teach the principles and gold standards we previously only were able to share with our national teams.”

USA Basketball Gold Camps will emphasize basketball fundamentals and progressive development through station work, group drills and competition, and participants are coached by USA Basketball licensed coaches.

Athletes interested in registering for a USA Basketball Gold Camp must submit an application for approval. To be eligible for USA Basketball Gold Camps, athletes must be in the designated grade at the time the camp is operated. More information on eligibility and the application process is available online.

Participants are responsible for transportation to and from the gym, lodging and basketball shoes, and each participating athlete will be provided with a USA Basketball jersey and shorts.

All USA Basketball camps utilize the USA Basketball Player Development Model which consists of four levels of development: Introductory, Foundational, Advanced and Performance.
